Sad story. Maybe he shouldn’t have gotten into the confrontation, or maybe he should have tried to just drive off or whatever. But once they started attacking him, all bets were off, and he had a right to defend himself. The prosecution seemed to be somewhat ridiculous.

Well, you are sort of bound to stay put when you get in an accident. They would have prosecuted him for leaving the scene of an accident otherwise. You can’t win even when you are right.
